A Napa man faces multiple felony allegations after an argument with his wife turned violent, according to police.
Shortly before midnight Friday, Martin Villegas-Zamudio, 29, and his wife were driving from American Canyon to Napa when they began to argue, after which he grabbed his spouse's hair and punched her several times, according to Sgt. Todd Shulman. After the vehicle pulled into a parking lot in the 300 block of Gasser Drive, Villegas-Zamudio threatened to keep hitting his wife unless she gave up her cellphone, which she did, Shulman said.
The woman then left the vehicle and flagged down a passer-by, who called 911 to report the incident, according to Shulman. Police found the woman's husband at a nearby apartment and detained him at 12:07 a.m. Saturday, Shulman said.
Villegas-Zamudio was booked into the Napa County jail on suspicion of robbery, domestic violence and making a criminal threat.
